Take the appendix of Why Johnny Can't Tell Right From Wrong, expand it significantly under the direction of two highly literate and sensitive experts on children's books, and the result is this very useful book. Recommended books are divided into categories ranging from fables and fairy tales through historical and contemporary fiction, history, and biography to sacred texts, books for holidays, and much more. Within each category the brief summaries are organized by age groups. A sort of childhood ''lifetime reading plan'' to aid in the formation of the moral imagination.

An Eighth Day View:

Here is a family guide to classic novels, contemporary fiction, myths and legends, science fiction and fantasy, folktales, Bible stories, picture books, biographies, holiday stories, and many other books that celebrate virtues and values.
There are more than 300 titles to choose from, each featuring a dramatic story and memorable characters who explore moral ground and the difference between what is right and what is wrong. These books will capture your child's imagination, and conscience as well-whether it is Beauty pondering her promise to Beast, mischievous Max in "Where the Wild Things Are," the troubled boys of "Lord of the Flies," generous Mr. Badger in "The Wind in the Willows," or the courageous struggles of such real-life characters as Frederick Douglass and Anne Frank.
With entries arranged by category and reading level, there is something here for all readers-from preschoolers to teenagers-whatever their tastes may be. Each entry features a complete plot summary and publisher information so that you can find the book with ease in your local library or bookstore. It's not always easy to teach a child the difference between right and wrong, but stories-whether they are based on fantasy or rooted in real life-can speak to children more eloquently than any list of dos or don'ts and can impart moral values as they nurture a child's imagination.
